What We’re Reading…11/20/15

Each Friday, we post “What we’re reading.” Essentially, it is a list of posts that we wish we had written or articles that we feel add to the overall conversation about Tulsa, Life, and Faith. If you have an article that you want us to consider, email our lead contributor, Aaron Tiger (aarontiger@fumctulsa.org).

Tulsa

Here’s a cool photo gallery of “100 Things Every Tulsan Needs to Know About.” Great job by the Tulsa World.

Tulsa is getting more national love in this Huffington Post article.

We love this closing line about a 105 year old woman who’s still sharp and living in Broken Arrow. “And if she’s feeling up to it, she might show people how she earned a trophy case full of ballroom dancing championships back in the 1970s, when she was already a senior citizen.”

Life

This article about teaching gratitude by a local Tulsa blogger has been picked up by the Huffington Post. It reminds us of something Dr. Wade Paschal, Sr. Pastor at FUMC Tulsa, said recently “Parents fight the battles so the world doesn’t have to.”

We are pro family dinners around here, and this article makes some great points.

Here’s a fascinating long-form article about a former members of Westboro Baptist Church and how Twitter changed her life.

Faith

“I’ve heard them say over and over, “Love shouldn’t be this hard, it should come naturally.” In response I always say something like: “Why believe that? Would someone who wants to play professional baseball say, ‘It shouldn’t be so hard to hit a fastball’?” Here’s a great article on marriage from Tim Keller.

One of our contributors, Rebekah Bled, shared this article about how to talk to students about Paris with seedbed.com. If you have teenagers, check this out.

We’ll be off next Friday for Thanksgiving, but if we come across some great articles, we’ll try to share them on our facebook page. Be sure to like us so you always get the most up-to-date content!
